Research

Daniella’s research interests focus on modern Jewish history, modern France, the Holocaust, and the history of gender, childhood, and the family. She is currently completing a book manuscript that draws upon these research interests to explore how Jews and non-Jews in postwar France struggled over the rehabilitation of Jewish youth and the reconstruction of national identities in the aftermath of the French Liberation.

For the research and writing of this work she has received grants and fellowships from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, the National Foundation for Jewish Culture, the Memorial Foundation for Jewish Culture, the Center for Jewish History, and the Florence Gould Foundation.
